In collaboration with future living lab SPACE10, CPH:DOX has curated a programme of stories that address some of the radical shifts and challenges that we, as humans, face. From rapid urbanisation to climate change, from a future with artificial intelligence to the inequality of today, from increasing food shortages to how work life will look like in the future.

A hypnotic and beautiful documentary that serves as an important document of the working conditions we allow.
Join us for the screening of ‘Machines’ directed by Rahul Jain – one of the most hypnotic and beautiful documentary films at this year’s CPH:DOX.

SPACE10 x CPH:DOX presents ‘Citizen Jane: Battle for the City’
Enjoy the documentary about the legendary writer and urban activist Jane Jacobs, who helped change the way we look at cities and join us for a debate about future perspectives on urban living.
Join us for the screening of ‘Citizen Jane’ directed by Matt Tyrnauer. Legendary writer and urban activist Jane Jacobs helped change the way we look at cities. This inspirational story celebrates her most drastic battles in the 1960s: when she went up against New York City’s most ruthless power broker, Robert Moses. The rapid urbanisation of today means we need to build a city the size of New York every second month for the next 35 years. So we better do it right. This makes ‘Citizen Jane’ as relevant as ever.
After the screening Flemming Borreskov, IFHP President, will talk about his perspectives on “Cities for People/People for Cities” and his take on implementing the NUA (The UN Habitat’s New Urban Agenda).
Their will be an open discussion for the audience to ask questions and share their thoughts. A city for people is a city where everyone is welcome to share and participate, so join us in the discussion on how we can make cities better places for all. March 18/03 at 18:00.

CPH:DOX + SPACE10 presents ‘The future of work and death’ directed by Sean Blacknell & Wayne Walsh
Will robots take our jobs? Will we work forever? Will we ever die?
Join us for the screening of ‘The Future of Work and Death’ directed by Sean Blacknell & Wayne Walsh. World experts in the fields of futurology, anthropology, neuroscience, and philosophy consider the impact of technological advances and give a realistic look into the future of human life on the two certainties we have: work and death. It’s not the most beautiful film, but the arguments made are profoundly insightful and engaging. March 21 at 19:00. Tickets and more information here.
CPH:DOX | ‘Citizen Jane: Battle for the City’ + Q&A w. Jan Gehl
Together with IFHP and SPACE10 we invite you to the screening of the intriguing story about the courageous Jane Jacobs’ fight for her city in the documentary ‘Citizen Jane: Battle for the City’. Afterwards you can meet the famous architect Jan Gehl in a discussion about Jane Jacobs and how she has influenced urban planning and modern architecture.
‘Citizen Jane: Battle for the City’ focuses on Jane Jacobs and she fought for her beloved New York. In the 1950s and 60s, when the property magnate Robert Moses was exerting his powerful influence, Jacobs stood up against a male- and finance-dominated construction industry, which was obsessed with modern, monumental master plans.
Both as an activist and as the author of the architecture classic ‘The Death and Life of Great American Cities’, Jacobs was a true pioneer who was so far ahead of her time that her radical – and in fact deeply humanistic – ideas have only just started to enjoy a breakthrough in architectural mainstream.

CPH:DOX + SPACE10 presents ‘Free Lunch Society’ directed by Christian Tod
A road movie style documentary that dives into the complex topic of basic income. If robots and AI will steal our jobs, how will we earn money in the future?
Join us for the screening of ‘Free Lunch Society’ directed by Christian Tod. The debate over what technology does to work, jobs, and wages is as old as the industrial era itself. Some fear that robots and AI will steal our jobs and when that happens; how will we earn money? The solution could be an unconditional basic income for everyone, which has been considered a pipe dream for years but today this idea is catching on. ‘Free Lunch Society’ is a road movie style documentary that deep dives into this complex subject.
At the screening you can meet the director and we will host a debate between Uffe Elbæk (Political leader of Alternativet), Steen Jakobsen (Chief Economist at Saxo Bank) and Dorte Kolling (BIEN). March 20 at 18:30. Tickets here.
